Coen Brothers’ ‘Hail, Caesar!’ Gets Release Date

Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' Gets Release Date

Not so fast: Universal Pictures will release the Coen Brothers’ show business comedy “Hail, Caesar!” on Friday, February 5, 2016. The movie starts filming in January 2015.

The film stars George Clooney as Baird Whitlock, a 1950s Hollywood fixer who cleans up the messes of other movie stars. The film costars Ralph Fiennes, Josh Brolin, Tilda Swinton (who we interviewed here) and, according to IMDb, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill. Swinton says it’s definitely a comedy. 

Back in Winter 2013, in the days of “Inside Llewyn Davis,” the Coens told us in our Q&A that “Caesar” is “about the movie business and life and religion and faith.”

The film will reunite the Coens with both Clooney — who has starred in their more comedic fare including “O Brother Where Art Thou,” “Burn After Reading” and “Intolerable Cruelty” — and Brolin, who played Llewelyn Moss in “No Country For Old Men.”

Check out our ranking of the Coens’ oeuvre here; meanwhile, they wrote the most recent draft of Angelina Jolie’s Christmas entry “Unbroken,” adapted from the Laura Hillenbrand novel, and also have an upcoming collaboration with Steven Spielberg.
